I am trying to use the SplashScreen feature in Java 6, and it works
when I use the -splash parameter passed to the JVM. However, when I
try to use the MANIFEST file, it doesn't seem to work correctly. I
think this has to do with the fact that the image I am trying to
access is within another directory (it's specifically in a library
that has been included in the project's classpath). Here is my

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Main-Class: myproject.Main
SplashScreen-Image: "resources/icons/misc_icons/Title Screen.png"
Class-Path: lib/Project_Resources.jar

resources/icons/misc_icons/Title Screen.png is found within the
Project_Resources.jar. I have tried moving the Class-Path variable
before SplashScreen-Image but that does not seem to help the problem.

Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks

How can you have a Class-Path: of lib/Project_Resources.jar? Is lib in
the project jar? I don't think you can do that. Of course I could be
totally confused :-).
